Before the Clandestine Marriage Bill of 1753 was passed, marriage in England was legal if a couple promised to live together as man and wife, even if they had no witnesses, and even if the marriage was not consummated...

[texts]A Review of the Principal Events of the Last Ten Years in the Life of Mrs. Hannah Kinney: Together with Some Comments upon the Late Trial, Written by Herself - Hannah Hanson Kinney. Boston: J. N. Bradley, 1841.
Mrs. Kinney was acquitted of having poisoned her husband, but she found her church and her town unwilling to accept her. She eventually wrote this book justifying her actions and decrying the constant suspicion under which she lived, claiming (as most accounts of trials do) authenticity and veracity: "lay[ing] before an excited public an undisguised statement of facts, just as they occurred."

Chudleigh was attached to the English court as maid of honor to the Princess of Wales...
